National Certificate: Transport Operations

R16,500.00

PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION
Purpose:

The purpose of this qualification is to ensure the coordination and implementation of transport operations so that freight (goods, passengers or livestock) is moved from origin to destination in terms of stakeholder requirements. This must be done in compliance with legislative requirements and international codes and practices.
This qualification builds on the qualification at NQF Level 4 dealing with practical aspects of transport operations. It will provide career development opportunities for those working in transport operations, and promote mobility across the different modes of transport.
Transport is a complex sector in and of itself, and at the same time it affects every other sector in some way. It is essential that those in charge of transport operations develop the insight, knowledge and skill to function effectively in a competitive, multi-faceted environment with unique demands.

The multi-modal nature of this qualification will also provide for a variety of learning pathways with increased specialisation possible, as required. The qualification will also enable many to have their practical skills, developed on the job, recognised through an RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) process.

A learner obtaining this qualification will be able to:

  • Maintain compliance with transport legislation.
  • Establish and maintain service level agreements in a transport function.
  • Implement risk mitigation and contingency plans in a transport environment.
  • Plan transport and transport infrastructure to meet contractual obligations.
  • Apply the principles of the economics of transport to transport operations.
